Dermatology Triage Using Consultant Connect

Published: 28th October 2021
We share key results from our top 10 teledermatology projects over the last 12 months in this article. Over 30,000 patients have benefitted from our service in the last 12 months resulting in savings to the NHS of more than £3.5 million.

Our teledermatology service has handled over 600,000 photos over the last 3 years.  GPs can share high-quality, IG secure images from a mobile phone directly with Consultant Dermatologists to reduce unnecessary hospital visits and speed up patient care.

Where local clinicians are available, these are used. Where none are available, we use a national network of NHS ‘Virtual’ consultants from the National Consultant Network.

In December 2020, 60% of non-eRS advice and guidance requests were handled via the Consultant Connect Platform (according to the Elective Care Recovery and Transformation Programme – National Advice & Guidance Platform Data).
